Morning television got way more interesting after the Daily Mail revealed that Good Morning America anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach were having an affair. In the wake of this revelation, ABC News took the controversial couple off the air, pending review. The network is purportedly looking into the morality of the situation. This week, jarrett and Tre’vell ask, “Whose morality?” Should corporations get to decide what is and is not moral? If your small town newspaper reporter were in a polyamorous relationship, why is that a problem?
Plus, as part of our ongoing series featuring great gift ideas for the holidays from Black, POC, Queer, & Trans-owned businesses, MSpired Room’s Mischalay Williams joins us to tell the hosts about some of her bestselling products.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
